The New York Jets enter week six of their season and are sitting in an uncomfortable position at the bottom of the standings with a 1-4 record. The Jets enter a critical Monday night game in Phoenix, Arizona with the Arizona Cardinals and both teams badly need a victory.
The Jets have the pieces in place on paper with this roster, but the team can’t seem to put the performance together when it is getting to the games. Ryan Fitzpatrick and the secondary have mightily struggled and now the Jets are losing star wide receiver Eric Decker for the rest of the season due to injury.
With all of this occurring, head coach Todd Bowles remains confident the team will turn its season around and is not looking to make any changes.
“We have a good plan in place, we have a good staff in place,” said Bowles. “Our players, for the most part, are playing tough football right now. It’s just a matter of making some critical changes in the second half as far as making plays. I don’t feel there’s a need to change right now.”
This is the first major challenge Bowles is facing with the Jets and he must find a way to turn it around soon. Bowles must look to adjust the game plan on both sides of the football as the offense and defense simply not has been clicking together.
It is not too late in the season yet, but Bowles needs to find the proper adjustments now as the Jets season could go in the wrong direction if this does not occur soon.
